but romney got the popular vote. i agree that would have been bad. it would have denied the democrat the clear mandate. the implication from the right wing seemed to have been had the republican candidate won the popular vote, there would be trouble of some undefined type. what the heck did that mean? yes, we've had to put up with this ridiculous secession petitions out there, the texas version having been signed by over 100,000 people since election day, but could the right have gone further had it been armed with a popular vote victory? there does seem to be a difference in the two parties. when al gore lost 12 years ago, he ignored his 600,000 vote victory in the popular vote. he just learned to live with the irony. republicans have carefully forgotten this bit of history, but i have real doubts those on the angry, demanding right would have been so quietly obedient to constitutional law. there's something out there on the right right now that is still uneasy with this defeat. searching desperately for an explanation of how the conservative caterpillar they had right there in thei
one more from the "where are they now?." you may remember mitt romney made a rather infamous statement that 47% of the country would not vote for him because they saw himself as victims, entitled-- housing, health care, from the government. as it turns out, much to his disappointment, barack obama was able to pick up four more percent of real america giving him the victory. of course romney walked back his 47% statement. >> in this case i said something that was just completely wrong, and i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about 100%, and-- and that's been demonstrated throughout my life. >> jon: i believe him. ( laughter ) there's something about a man standing in front of a perfectly pressed flag and the world's cleanest indoor tractor that says, "i'm the real deal." laughed laug ( laughter ) you can imagine my surprise when this man, so unfairly character turd, by his own words, as an out-of-touch plutocrat yesterday blamed his campaign loss on leaches. >> what the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them
, mitt romney leading the republican party decided to make it all political and thanks to fox news, they're still trying to make it all political. and susan rice, not even nominated yet as secretary of state and she may not be. obama could decide to go with john kerry or jane armen or who knows who else, right? susan rice has to go up to the united states senate today and meet with -- she will, meet with john mccain and lindsey graham and a couple of other senators and try to explain herself. she shouldn't have to do that. i think it is embarrassing. kevin is calling from chicago. what do you think kevin? >> caller: hey, how do youing, bill? >> bill: good to hear from you. >> caller: if they were a legitimate news organization, wouldn't you go with the fact -- take whatever your guest says and you go with it. but since everybody knows they're the mouthpiece of the republicans, i find it amusing that they're so inept they don't even see what their guest is going to say. it is like how dumb are they? it just reinforc
was all in with romney. they didn't split their conviction as usual. >> stephanie: right. >> caller: yeah, so instead of fighting them for a tax increase on the top 2% that america supports, let's gently go over that fiscal slope and then. >> stephanie: it's more like a fiscal bunny hill. i think with a good flying sauce as her weeding fine and go right into january. >> caller: fuzzy too right? >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: gently go over to face asking slope and give 98% of americans a tax decrease and everybody will get what the american people wanted. >> stephanie: yeah within i have to say we're going to have a big discussion about this this morning. there's a lot of interesting different sides you're with patrick murray. senator murray is saying it's not a cliff it's a slope. he's saying it can be fixed fairly quickly in january. >> what we don't want is extending the bush tax cuts again, because that's what put us into this situation in the first place. >> stephanie: eric cantor on fox news is lying. what's the chance? it's like there wasn't an election of some sort where mitt romn

because they signify the clash, the clash that's taking place in america right now. texas voted for romney by about 1.3 million votes. california voted for obama by about 2.3 million votes. texas conservative state. california, dominated by liberal americans. both states have more minority voters than white voters. the overriding tradition of texas is that self-reliance rules. most voters there don't want government telling them what to do. therefore, they don't have a lot of social service. no state income tax in texas. however, get in the lone star state about $40 billion. there is a balanced budget amendment. by contrast california owes an astounding $167 billion. and it's running an annual deficit of about 9 billion. money they that can never never be paid back. what is california getting for all of that? high school graduation rate 37 out of 50 states. per capita income, $44,500. but, there is a 10.1% unemployment rate. crime number one. there are more prisoners in california than any other state. take a look at texas. high school ranks 44th. slightly above california. per capita inco
nellie, a republican who actively supported mitt romney. he did a radio interview where one of the hosts, cheri jacobus, had reasonable -- let's hear what she said. >> voter photo i.d., obama lost every one of those states. he can't win in a state where photo i.d. is required. so clearly there's something going on out there, and until there's a way to have something done about it, where when you report it, you know it's going to be looked into, the other side just says, oh, well, you're just poor losers and that sort of thing. >> your tone suggests you're a little upset with me. you're preaching to the choir. i'm with you completely. >> well, get this, president obama lost georgia, indiana, kansas, and tennessee not because of their strict photo i.d. laws but because of their conservative voting majorities obviously. >>> neck, a whole new meaning for a campaign in shreds. we're talking literally. the remains of some documents with information about mitt romney's campaign motorcade went through an unlikely disposal process. they became the confetti found bybee standers at the macy's day t
, romney for president, on your group website says inclusion wins. however, romney didn't offer that style in his message. from your position, why should a lesbian voter give the republicans a second look? >> for the same reason that any voter should consider all issues when they decide who they want to support in an election. lesbian voters, like all americans, are multifacetted individuals and when you speak about the potential to fiscal cliff and the damage to the economy, we've considered the economy when we made our endorsement decision. and lesbian voters, well, when you've got an economy that is sluggish, when you've got high unemployment figures, a population that suffers from potential discrimination in 29 states is going to look hard at who they think is going to make the best decisions for the economy. >> when it comes to voting, though, is that the only thing that the log cabin republicans looked at was the economy and giving that endorsement to mitt romney because he is not a supporter of marriage equality or even civil unions. and from what we know about what was discussed du
, by a combined total of 300 30,000 votes. now, had mitt romney won those states, we would be talking about what a genius he was. in fact, any other democrat would have lost this election. i think that baracobama is unique. >> i believe so. i believe that barack obama's record was a loser's record, but he managed to win in part because romney was not a great messenger and obama wasn't a great messenger for his ideology. cheryl: i said this, i'll be gentle is coming out and saying that the gop has got to speak more to the middle class. is he right? >> yes, i think there are always ways to improve wht you are saying and how you say it. but i don't think it's a fundamental issue. i don't think that the reblicans should become more like democrats. therefore, we don't have a two-party system. we just have a big government party. i think republicans have to sharpen the message and i think that they have to practice what they reach. to many of the republican constituents are sort of clamoring for government programs rather than denouncing the government programs. when a capitalism, for example, there h
's our leader. >> sean: i don't get this. if you listen to leaders, they'll say romney's 47% comment played a big role in this election. >> right. >> sean: but obama can talk about bitter people in the midwest and in pennsylvania that cling to their guns and bibles with antipathy to those not like him, he gets a pass. >> right. >> sean: why isn't it equal? >> i'm not going to defend jamie foxx, because i think he went over the top -- what's that? >> sean: i said why does obama get away with it and romney doesn't? >> i don't think he gets away with it. they get their shots, they take their shots and shots are taken at them. the bigger issue with the republican party, maybe they have to be more moderate to appeal to more people. >> sean: but if the 47% -- >> i really believe that. i think there are a broader base of people tying in to what the democrats have to say than what the republicans have to say. >> sean: but if the analysis were correct that, the 47% comment, that the media ran with, played such a big role, then why didn't the comments of bitter people with guns and religion pl

. >> i just wonder if during hurricane sandy if mitt romney had said i really, really, appreciate what the president is doing at this time of crisis for our country. we support what he's doing, we support the people in new jersey and new york and new york city and also during foreign policy crises where there might have been some alignment if mitt romney had just said the president is doing the right thing or stayed out of the way might it have made a difference. because there are times that happens, they could actually agree. >> and mitt romney polled well when he talked about his ability to work across the aisle when he was governor of massachusetts. and i think that's message for what's going on in washington right now. people are tired of gridlock, tired of the endless ideological warfare, and hopefully that and the fact that the president's numbers are up, hopefully that helps moving into the negotiations about the fiscal cliff and all else. essentially the message in washington, we need to see a little bit of progress. >>> former governor jeb bush met yesterday with former staffe

that supported mitt romney to refuse to participate in the electoral college. a move they believe would change the results of the election. it's the kind of radical talk that turned off a lot of voters in the last election, but the wall street journal reports, they are regrouping, searching for candidates who can win in 2014. i'm joined by amy cramer who is chair of the tea party express. good morning. >> good morning. how are you? >> good to see you. let me ask you about the state senator's proposal. do you think this election can and should be constitutionally overturned? >> no. the people spoke and we have the results of the election. it stands. we need to like you said regroup and look at what we need to do better moving forward. but the election's not going to be overturned. >> many tea party activists point the finger of blame at mitt romney for the group's poor showing. tell me what you've looked at in terms of this past election and what lessons have you learned from your losses? >> well, you know, there's plenty of blame to go around. tea party candidates lost, moderates lost, there's
romney was in the primary and they can delegate stuff and then hurricane sandy hit and everyone said that in an emergency, having federal coordination is good. when you don't want to take the time to pick it up from scratch, that's good. we have delegated to the private sector all of our emergency response for cellular networks and these new, what we call ip networks or cable phone service like bondage. when it comes to the old copper networks, we know all about that. we have crews on call, cell power, reliability built into that from day one. that is why new yorkers were scrambling. we don't need to take the old rules from the ma bell days, but we didn't have the federal government and the state government taking a look at what happened. they need to figure out what are the ground was? what are the things that you want to have in place before an emergency hits? one of the things that you need to be doing before a crisis so that when a crisis hits, everybody is operating on the same page and everybody is moving as quickly as they can and they are able to do the best job that they can

phenomenally well and their effective tax rate, take mitt romney, is extremely low. he says this is a no-brainer. >> eliot: he said it's at 19.5% and that is simply, he said it's unfair and it has led to the maldirection of income and wasn't. he said do something about it. that's why he should be-- >> what is really grotesque, you may have seen on some of the network tv, people like lloyd blankfein the head of goldman sachs. you have wall treat millionaires who in many ways caused this recession and with all the suffering taking place they're going on television saying, you know we've got to cut social security medicare, and medicaid. that's totally obscene. >> eliot: you are correct senator. i want to switch gears. one of the reasons why it's been so hard, particularly in the senate to getting things accomplished is the filibuster. we have this brief open window to get filibuster reform. where are we? will you have the magic 51 votes and will reid be able to use get the 51 votes to get the reform. >> you're quite right people are angry. they're hurting and congress is not responding. on
to do? hang around for another 15 until medicaid shows up? they are paying lip service. it's romney 2.0. that's all it is. so what should liberals in this country be prepared to accept at this point as you see it? >> i really think that we should go back to the clinton rates, which are still lower than they should be. that's where we ought to start. if people want to talk about tax reform, let them get specific. because there are certain forms of so-called tax reform that could hammer the middle class. do we want to get rid of the mortgage reduction to hit middle class people? we can't do that. >> that won't happen because the real estate lobby is too strong. and i wish the country would stop talking about the mortgage deduction. it isn't going to happen. there's enough people in washington that are going to make sure. it's a good talking point to scare the hell out of middle-class families, but they are not protecting them. the companies that are getting huge defense contracts are now experts on what we ought to do with the budget. and they are there protecting their own backside. th
